DERRICK NNADI is a defensive tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs. And he’s celebrating their Super Bowl win this week in a pretty cool way.
All season long, he’s been working with a group called the Kansas City Pet Project that helps care for thousands of shelter animals each year.
Every time the Chiefs won a game, he paid a dog’s adoption fee to encourage more people to adopt. The average fee is around $150, and the Chiefs won 15 games. So that’s roughly $2,300.
And to celebrate their trip to the Super Bowl, he decided to cover ALL of the adoption fees for every dog they had.
He’s paying the fees for over a hundred dogs, and a lot of them have already been adopted because of it. One estimate put the total donation somewhere between $10,000 and $30,000.
Derrick says he always wanted a dog as a kid but wasn’t allowed to get one. So that’s why he’s been so involved.
